Mad about Ikat!!! Yes, I am completely in love with Ikat print. I like the repetition of the pattern and its a great alternative to wearing florals or stripes (though floral Ikat print is available). This print not only looks good in clothes, it’s looks great on shoes and home decorating items like lamp shades, cups/plates and pillows. It comes in various colors and if you are wearing it, then it easily goes from day to night. See how Katie Holmes and Khloe K. wears it casually during the day and Kristen Bell and Rachel Zoe dresses it up for night. Finally, our first lady shows us how to wear it for work. Below are some Ikat print items that you can get for yourself.

Monday Madness


Mad about denim shirts!!  Denim is the only item in my closet that I can wear year round in NY; from freezing cold to hot melting in the sun summer days, it never fails and is always fashionable.  So, why not add a denim shirt to your collection of must have staples?  I am pretty sure most of you have this item in your closet, or have been wearing it for years, and you must think it’s not really a staple if you can only wear it casually, since its denim. However, recent celeb outings will make you think otherwise.  Denim shirts have been showing up from red carpets to night out on the town.  It’s pretty much a neutral piece and can be dressed up or down depending on what you wear it with.

Night out:

Dress it up for night out by pairing it with fitted pencil skirt and sky high heels, like my fav fashionista Rihanna, or switch the pencil skirt with fitted leather pants/leggings like Kristin Cavallari for a girls night out. Another great night time option is tucking it in colored pants, (choose cotton sateen pants) like Rachel Roy for a dinner date.


Denim on denim is a great look for daytime, as long as you pair it light & dark (light shirt with dark denim or vice versa).  See how Ashley Olsen wears it with dark denim skinny jeans and Katie Holmes wears it with dark denim bell-bottoms (you can switch the bell-bottoms with denim trousers for a more dressed up daytime look).  Wear it with any type of shorts or mini skirts (denim on denim & I know you fash lovers have worn it with shorts/minis before) for running errands like Vanessa Hudgens and Anne Hathaway respectively.


Colored and floral printed denim are very trendy now.  See how Khloe K. wears her fiery red jeans with denim shirt (and leopard, I love leopard).  Rihanna & Katie Holmes are back again showing us how they paired their floral pants with denim shirt.  Maxi skirts are also another summer fav and trendy now; see how Drew Barrymore styled her shirt with long, ruffled skirt, totally casual chic (a dressy option for daytime)!!  Lastly, we have Jenna Dewan-Tatum who is wearing her denim shirt with printed maxi skirt for very casual look great for running errands or strolling hand in hand with your love enjoying a great summer day.

Let me know how you guys style your denim shirts in the comments below.

Here are few retailers where you can get your denim on:
